Students also participated as educators in children’s workshops organized as part of the European Museum Night program, which took place at the Terra Museum on May 14.
Since the founding of the Terra Symposium, one of the main priority axes, in addition to the presentation of contemporary art, is active participation in the field of multiculturalism and interculturalism. International institutional cooperation with academic institutions from the region confirms the general idea of the Terra Center to contribute to bilateral cooperation of participating countries in networking, strengthening intercultural dialogue and preserving collective memory and cultural understanding as mirrors of common past, present and future. Mutual cultural understanding, intercultural dialogue and successful practices in the field of culture and art significantly contribute to the development of cultural diplomacy by developing the method of “soft power” as a successful instrument of bilateral and multilateral cooperation.
